In 2009, photographer Ana Castañeda Cano captured the bizarre appearance of an unknown character, seemingly unfazed by his own nudity, striding down Avenida Luzuriaga in Huaraz, Peru. Huaraz is located about 260 miles north of Lima in the Callejón de Huaylas valley.  Adventure and nature seekers come here to hike, rock climb and visit the glaciers of the Cordillera Blanca.  The snow peak of  Huascarán, considered to be the highest mountain in the tropics, is another highlight of this region and accessible from Huaraz.
